What’s the best thing that’s happened to you this week?
Going to our work social club function.
Who was your role model when you were a child?
I was always keen on footy and cricket and aspired to be my best, so it would be the coaches I had during junior sport.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a pilot. I joined Ansett as a fitter and turner with a view to become a flight engineer, but found out that I had selected the wrong trade to give me that potential path.
What is your greatest achievement?
Selling the business I built and ran successfully.
What is the most interesting thing about you?
You will find this out as you get to know me. I have travelled a lot and had many varied experiences, both good and bad. These provide for a good conversation.
What was your favourite birthday or Christmas present?
This is a hard question. I have received many great presents along the way. My first bike and first cricket bat.
What was the worst present you have received?
There have not been any that standout. Always grateful that somebody has made the effort to get me something.
If money was not a concern, what would you do every day if you didn’t work?
I would go to the gym and do some cardio, weights and swimming to lose weight, gain fitness and better my health.
What was the funniest moment in your life?
There have been many. One that would stand out would be a dare I was given during my apprenticeship. After a fancy-dress night, I was dared to drive to work and clock on. I had my devils fork strapped to the roof of my car and was dressed in my devil’s costume and walked from the carpark into the building to clock on.
What was the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you?
Coming home from a big night out in Singapore and I had been pick pocketed. My wallet has been emptied of all cash. Hotel reception had to pay the taxi driver and I had to borrow money from friends for the taxi ride to the airport the next day.
Have you ever seen a ghost or an alien?
I was present when somebody was under hypnosis and I saw their spirit leave their body.
If you could rule the world for one day, what would you ban?
Most likely cigarette smoking.
What irritates you the most?
My 3 ex-wives.
